Step 1 — Raspberry Pi Enclosure v2 Assembly 

• Make sure you have everything 
needed for assembly. The bag of 
parts should include six blue 
acrylic pieces, four nuts, and four 

• Your parts may have a 
different etching, but don't 
worry, they'll fit together just as 

• If you have nine acrylic 
pieces and no nuts or bolts, 
you have v1 of the enclosure. See 
assembly instructions here . 


Step 2 

• Fit the small acrylic piece with "LAN" and "USB" etched in it onto the PCB as shown, with 
the text facing out. 

• Now slide the bottom piece (the one with the URLs) into the two small cutouts of the side 
piece, with the text facing out. 

• The SD Card slot on the opposite side of the PCB should rest on the bottom piece. 


If you'd like to use the Raspberry Pi Cobbler with your Pi, install it now.

Step 3 


• Hold the assembly in one hand, 
and slide the top piece into place 
with the other, with the text facing 

• This piece is optional, but 
we recommend you use it, 
since it will add substantial 
structural support to the whole 
enclosure. If you want to go on 
without it (you can always add it 
later), skip this step. 

Step 4 

• Now add the other small side piece 
- the one with "Make: Pi," "SD" and 
"PWR" etched on it. Again, the text 
should face out. 

• Make sure the two small 
sides are parallel to each 
other. There should be very little 
wiggle room for the PCB.

Step 5 



Next, add the larger side piece with "AUDIO" and "VIDEO" etched on it to the enclosure. 
Snap it into place! 

• If you have a Pi Cobbler installed, slide the ribbon cable into the cutout on the right 
side of this piece before snapping it into place. 

• Now add the final side piece. As always, the text should face out. 


Step 6 

• Now it's time to fasten everything together! Hold the enclosure on its side and insert one of 
the nuts. Insert a bolt through one of the side pieces and screw it in. Repeat this four times 
to assemble the whole box. 

• If one of the nuts falls into the enclosure, don't worry. You should be able to guide it 
out through one of the holes.
